LDR




The team leaders and management at LDR are passionate people who strive for excellence across all aspects of the school programme.


Achieving academic and co-curricular excellence and a healthy attitude to life for all of our students is of paramount importance to the founders of LDR International School. The dedication our leaders demonstrate to upholding the school’s vision and mission is outstanding and provides a strong foundation for all teachers and staff to build upon. Each year, we read over 100 teacher applications before carefully selecting candidates for any new teaching positions. All new teachers receive 3 weeks of rigorous training and benefit from an additional 40 hours of ongoing professional development support throughout each school year.

We require that all our teachers hold suitable qualifications and be experienced educators. Most of all, our teachers must be ready to be suitable role models to our students. We know that we ultimately teach through modelling and expect all teachers to fully embrace the values of the school and develop personal attributes in line with the school’s Thirteen Enlightening Habits. You will find our talented teachers under each year level, within our Academic Programme

I am impressed with the LDR philosophy. What we are trying to achieve at LDR is not only about improving our students’ futures but also about supporting the development of every employee and parent at the school.

I believe kids should be at the centre of learning and have a lead role in directing their own education, guided and supported by our professional teachers. Trying and sometimes getting things wrong is not failing – in fact it is the best way to develop and progress. This culture of learning at school is what inspires me to build and maintain our quality at LDR.
